Last week, fans were treated to a first glimpse at the stars set for the upcoming third series based on The Walking Dead, which will premiere sometime this spring, and we have the latest casting news to help pass the time until then. Deadline reported early today that Nico Tortorella (Scream 4) has joined the yet-to-be-titled series in a leading role.
The actor will play a character named Felix, who is described as an honorable man of his word who isn’t afraid to fight for others’ safety and acceptance.
The series has yet to be given a title, but it will follow two young female protagonists who have come of age knowing only this outbreak, which should lead to some fairly unique storytelling. They will be joined by various friends and other youth as they seek out to discover themselves and the world around them.
Starring in the new spinoff show is Alexa Mansour (Unfiltered: Dark Web) as Hope, Nicolas Cantu (The Good Place) as Elton, Hal Cumpston (Bilched) as Silas, Annet Mahendru as Huck, and Aliyah Royale as Iris. Also on board for the series is Nico Tortorella (Scream 4). The show is set to debut sometime this spring, but further details are not yet available.
